- FIRST, FIRSTLY, FIRST OF ALL, IN THE FIRST PLACE
First of all, I’d like to talk about the benefits of having a pet pig.
- TO BEGIN WITH
To begin with, pet pigs are cleaner than dogs.
- FOR ONE THING
For one thing, they’re completely loyal to their owners.
- SECOND, SECONDLY, IN THE SECOND PLACE
Secondly, their impressive numeracy skills must be mentioned.
- FOR ANOTHER THING
For another thing, you might want to consider how cute they look in pyjamas.
- THIRD, THIRDLY, IN THE THIRD PLACE
In the third place, you can always count on your pet pig to perform some tricks for you when you’d like to impress a pretty girl.
Also, they don’t eat much.
Besides not eating much, they won’t ever chew on your electric cords.
- IN ADDITION
In addition, they can be taught to feed themselves if you allow them access to your pantry.
Furthermore, they make wonderful walking buddies.
Moreover, they’ll show you the way home when you’re drunk.
Finally, pet pigs are fantastic guards. No burglar would ever have the heart to hurt a pet pig.
- LAST, LASTLY, LAST OF ALL
Lastly, your reputation as an eccentric will rapidly grow in the neighbourhood if you’re seen walking a pet pig on a leash every morning.
